I take a look at how I rank Doctor Who episodes in comparison to how other people rank said episodes. This week I'm looking back at the series that kicked of the doctor who revival.
Let's start by giving each episode a rating out of 10.
End of The World-7.4
The Unquiet dead-7.1
Aliens of London-7.8
World War Three-7.6
The Long Game-6.9
The Empty Child-9.3
The Doctor Dances-9.6
Parting of the Ways-8.8
So then, this is how the series would look like in order. Eventually I shall add episodes from each series so by the end of this series of articles we will discover my complete and honest ranking of all new who episodes.
Two parters are not grouped, they are listed as singular episodes.
So overall what would I give the series on average?=8.2-My favourite series of new who, or at least most consistent I think
Mathmatical score to determine series 1 average=8.08461538462
So my estimate was roughly right. I worked this out by adding all of the scores for series 1 (Or series 27) of new who together and dividing this total by 13, the amount of episodes in the season, therefore showing the mean average of the series.
Let's see how this compares to IMDB's thoughts of the series
End of the World-7.6
The Unquiet Dead-7.7
Aliens of London-7.1
World War Three-7.1
The Long Game-7.3
The Empty Child-9.2
The Doctor Dances-9.1
Parting of the ways-9.1
So then the ranking for the series is as follows. If an episode has the same score as one of the others, then the first episode broadcast shall be listed higher than the other episode with the same score. Like before, two parters are listed as two separate episodes.
Average mathmatical score using calculator generated as before=8.06153846154
So let's compare these two scores
8.06153846154 vs 8.08461538462 which means as expected series 1, or series 27, was slightly better received by me than it was by IMDB users on average. However, there was only 0.02 difference in it-which is not much at all!
Now it's your chance to decide which episode is the strongest from the first series of the revival. We have set up a survey below, and even though you cannot rate the episodes out of 10, you can decide which is the best. Do you agree with me in my ranking? Do you agree with IMDB? Or do you have a completely different opinion? Leave your thoughts in the comments below!
